Still, there is a happier side to {{Cindy Morgan}}'s personal life - and its name is Sigmund Brouwer. Sigmund (an accomplished author in his own right) and Cindy will celebrate their third wedding anniversary in the year 2000, making them bona fide veterans of this marriage thing.

"It was hard to be single," Cindy says, "and to just feel like you hadn't found the person who would love you for who you are-for all your good and bad qualities." She smiles, "Getting married was a wonderful thing," then she frowns, "but from a career standpoint, we live in Canada half the year, and we live in Kentucky half the year or part of the year. And then I work in Nashville and then I travel probably two hundred days a year, at least So, it's a lot to juggle with marriage."

Still, Sigmund and Cindy are committed to making it work. To that end, the two often sit down to plan job schedules, tours, appearances and such to maximize their time together. At one point in their young marriage, the couple had to endure three months apart from each other-and they learned from that. Now they've promised to never plan to be away from each other for more than eight days at a time. And they've been creative, even touring together as a team, with Cindy performing her music and Sigmund doing selected readings from his books.

Although it can be hard to invest in a marriage and maintain the hectic celebrity schedules Cindy and Sigmund do, they're determined to live happily ever after together-and are willing to pay the price for that. "This is what we want to do," Cindy says. "This is what we want to make our priority."

And children? Could happen anytime - and Cindy looks forward to the day she becomes a Mom. In fact, other than music and faith in Christ, she says that marriage and children are the only other things she feels strongly enough to commit her life to.

But for now, Cindy Morgan - circa 2000 - is content to busy herself giving her best to her music, her marriage, her faith, and the great unknowns of the 21st century - and that's more than good enough.
